A Year in Lockdown – The Positives I've Experienced

Oh how a year has changed things so much. This time last year I was planning holidays to Spain and Mexico, to experience other cultures and explore new countries. Little did I know that the whole world would some to a stand still, and we'd be going nowhere for the foreseeable.
